I went to Goodwill over the weekend and wow, they had a lot of goodies! I only purchased the the dresser because I kept second guessing myself.  So by the time I realized I wanted the two green chairs with the wooden arms, they were soldSad smile

Oh well… There’s always something better, right?!  Maybe if I had someone thrifting with me.  Who wants to shop with me this weekend?!?!

Great dresser - but yes the chairs would have been a great buy too! Your goodwill looks like they're priced way better than the ones in our area - ours are always overpriced!

OOOOOHHH....

I want that white bench and the table too!

Really GOOD prices.

I can't wait to see more about the dresser you got.

I have a Bunny Hop party on Wednesdays on you are invited :)

Love those green chairs! And $22 for one of those wing back chairs? I am sold! Imagine upholstering them in your favorite fabric!

Adore your finds! Thanks for stopping by!

P/S: I already sent you an email. Looking forward to hear from you. :) And please check back tomorrow! I will be hosting a fabulous giveaway on my blog!

Only a loser would leave two matching chair in a store at that price.

Tonia said...

I enjoy thrifting alone. No one to rush me if I am pondering a purchase. Better luck next time on finding similar chairs.

@Mother of Vein don't be so hard on her :)

Tricia said...

Clearly, I *should* coming shopping with you because we have nothing like that in our thrift stores. And if we did, they would be triple those prices!

Kim@Chattafabulous said...

I spent the entire weekend last weekend thrifting and came up with nothing! I would have been all over all those chairs except the wingbacks. Too expensive to have redone and I don't have the skills to tackle them myself!

Divamom said...

Sometimes we miss out on the good stuff, but don't beat yourself up about it. You'll get something way cooler in the future! Wish you were near me, because I'd definitely have fun shopping with you!

Be Blessed!

I would definitely go with you if we lived closer. Sometimes you need a friend to talk you into things. Could be a good or bad thing :)

Janell @ Isabella and Max said...

Agree with the first comment, I'm always surprised when I see the prices of items you find, much lower than here!! What are you going to do with the dresser? Janell

Decor & Harmony @ 4290 said...

Wow! You have a lot of self control I would have bought everything :) I can't wait to see how you "swoon" the dresser.

La Monica said...

I wish I could join you, but our schedule is crazy on the weekend for the next month and 1/2. But I hope I can get a raincheck some time!

Laekitha,great finds!! I have the night stand to go with your dresser. I have been meaning to paint it in a high gloss white. of course it is not done, but I am sure if you had it as long as i have you would already have it done!! Great prices by the way, much lower than what I see around here!! If I did not live in Calif. I would go shopping with you and I think we could really get into some serious trouble, lol

What great finds. I travel around ATL and never seem to find bargains that good. The grand opening of the McDonough Goodwill is this Thursday and I'll be there. Come join the fun.
And, I'm always up for a thrift shopping adventure. Just give me a shout out and I'd love to tag along.

My friends think I'm certifiable because I shop in thrift stores. You're right, thrifting would be much more fun with a like minded friend.
